By Oreofe Jolaoso | 11/6/2016 | Product Analysis |Beginners

Reporting is indispensable for any data driven environment. This is primarily due to the insights reports provide which organizations rely on for actionable information to achieve their required business objectives. Report designers require reporting tools and facilities to create the required intelligence in a timely fashion and in this review we will look at Combit’s List & Label reporting component and it’s suitability for achieving your reporting needs.

Combit’s List & Label is a reporting component that gives the end user facilities for designing reports in an intuitive, interactive designer. The tool can retrieve data from standard database platforms such as Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, IBM DB2 and SQLite databases. Data sources that can be accessed via OLE DB, ODBC or ADO are also supported.   Furthermore, the component offers support for unbound data and can be extended to support other data sources by means of defined interfaces. Designed reports can be exported to formats such as PDF, HTML, RTF, Excel, MHTML, XML, XPS, JPEG, EMF, TIFF/Multi-page TIFF, TTY, CSV, ZIP and PNG.

The component enables you to create simple list reports and all-inclusive detailed reports/sub reports which can include crosstabs, charts, barcodes, graphics etc. The Designer feature in the component enables users to seamlessly integrate custom objects. Also available is a HTML5 viewer and the Designer can be used by end-users (royalty free) with all paid editions of List & Label. As well, List & Label can be utilized in windows based development environments such as Microsoft Visual Studio and the Embarcadero RAD Studio.

 

Ease of Use

As previously stated, the component is compromised of a Designer which gives users the flexibility of designing reports in an IDE environment. It provides stock report objects which includes tables, charts, crosstabs, gauges, HTML, formatted text, barcodes, matrix codes, lines, rectangles and images. The Designer can be extended by a developer and custom objects, functions and menu actions are supported. Further, applications can interact with a report via the programmable object model of the report.

This tool is easy to use  and highly acclaimed for the following reasons.

  • Has an intuitive interface that allows users to create reports via drag & drop.
  • You can easily combine multiple data sources such as sql data and csv data into your report projects.
  • Enables you to display HTML content in your report.

 

  • Data preview is directly integrated.
  • List & Label supports the batch printing of labels, tags and forms without the need for word processing software.
  • Automatic table of contents or indices can be integrated in reports, with the aid of a design wizard.
  • You can initialize the Designer directly from your .NET development environment using a smart tag link, without a single line of code.

 

Licensing

The List & Label reporting tool is available in the Standard Edition, or as one of two subscription editions namely the Professional and Enterprise editions.  All editions of the reporting tool allow you to redistribute the Designer without paying extra license fees. Features of the subscription editions include:

  • Service packs, access to knowledge base & forums      
  • 2D barcodes
  • DOM (document object model): customize/create projects without Designer
  • Customizable SAP Crystal Reports converter
  • Shapefiles for geovisualization
  • .NET source code as reference

Prospective users or developers should however know that currently the vendor stipulates that the license can be used non-concurrently on a user or developer’s PC and notebook. As earlier stated, the Designer can be redistributed free of charge. This means that you can deploy it with any application to provide end users with in-built output functionality which can be in the form of charts reports, sub reports, Gantt charts, gauges, forms, labels, mail merges, barcodes etc. Prospective users also have the option of downloading and using a free thirty day trial version of this tool. It is compatible with multiple Windows operating systems, from Windows 2000 to the most current version of Windows.

 

Documentation.

Prospective and current List& Label  users are assured of access to a wide range of knowledge base, forums and RSS feeds which provide information about the tool. There are quite a number relevant and helpful code examples and  help texts for each component provided by the vendor.

 

Conclusion.

Using  List & Label in  applications is quite simple according to numerous end users and it has been observed that you don’t require complex, prerequisite database drivers or setup procedures to implement this tool. You can do a simple copy and paste procedure to get started with List & Label and the developer is at liberty to select the development environment and development  language best suited for the  project.
